Thanks for posting closeups. It's already my favourite image made by You and as i can see it is going to look even better . i wolud suggest adding some elements made of different material though. Everything seems to be made of stone. It might look interesting to have some more shiney or reflective materials somewhere. Great work so far. Good luck mate!

Hey Tiger,

Stunning piece. I really enjoy this one. I'd only suggest to add a little rim light to pop those red robed characters out a bit more from the shadows behind them. And perhaps darken the value of the sky at the very top left of the image, just that sliver and triangle behind the statue - my eye keeps remembering that jumping while I'm looking around your image. Real nitpics, as it's almost there.

Great work!

Outstanding work. It's a joy to look through all the details.
The perspective is also quite interesting - much like a wide angle lense - well done.

Maybe try a few faint lense filter gradients over the sky - give it a try it may enhance that cinematic feel you've created.

I look forward to the final image - all the best.

Hi Tiger1313. It's amazing, it has many of the qualities that I love in SF art. Excellent architecture too, it's spot on. I'd prefer it without those streams of airborne vehicles, making the mix of ancient civilisation / futuristic vehicle even more pronounced. But I'll take it just as it is, it's just beautiful.

Perfect rendering technique.. I wish I could do that.. Anyway, congatulations on ur final piece, its an awesome one, one of my favorite. Right now I see some things that could make it even more grand (at least for me), like painting a great wall in the back instead of those seperate buildings, but the way it is now is still one of the best. Good luck! I wish u all the best.. coz u r a very good artist!
